What is CFD trading?

CFD trading is a derivative financial instrument that mirrors the movements of the underlying asset, such as an index, energy or commodity market. As it is a derivative, you as a trader do not own the underlying asset; you use it to speculate on whether the price will rise or fall in the fast-paced financial markets

Benefits of CFD Trading

CFD trading is ideal for short term investment opportunities or to hedge your existing portfolio. Trading CFDs with FXOpen UK allows you to trade a wide range of financial markets, all from one account, to take advantage of the all benefits of the ECN trading model.

Tight, floating spreads from 0 pips, ultra-fast ECN execution, low margin requirements from 5%, low commissions and most importantly, no conflict of interest.
